We have an exciting opportunity to join our Cinque Ports family at our Ashford practice.
Full time position:
(40 hours) with no out of hours
Dependant on experience
An exciting opportunity to join our Cinque Ports family. Our nurses are all qualified RVN’s. We have 8 RVNS 1 SVN, and a PCA who is starting her nurse training in January. We need an experienced, enthusiastic, passionate, dedicated nurse with bundles of enthusiasm and knowledge to join our team at the main hospital in Ashford.
We have five full time and one part-time vet. The nurses are in charge of organising the theatre list, running busy nurse clinics, and making sure the vets are on time! We are committed to help you unleash your nursing potential and fully support your learning and development.
Our friendly hospital is a busy, fast-paced branch with a large, diverse caseload with plenty of opportunities to practice your nursing skills. We have a dedicated client care team in reception, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and delivering a happy welcome to any client coming through the door. We previously ran puppy parties, and it would be lovely to have a candidate interested in helping restart these.
We have a separate cat ward – away from those noisy hounds and a large dog ward which is the hub of the practice! So in-patients have regular contact and stimulation from our team! We are a gold member for ISFM, RCVS accredited with two awards and aiming for many more!
Shift patterns vary day to day, no out of hours. Vets Now are our out of hours provider and run from inside our very own Ashford Hospital, so there is no need to transfer your patients from one branch to another. The position is for five days per week, 2 in 9 Saturday shifts and 8.5-hour shifts.
